If you suffer from muscle cramps and spasms, you know how debilitating they can be. They can strike at any time and last for up to 10 minutes, while the tenderness following a cramp or spasm can last for up to 24 hours.
The following home remedies for muscle cramps not only can help with muscle cramp relief and muscle recovery after a cramp, but some of these options can even help prevent muscle cramps.
- Take a hot bath. A warm bath or heating pad can help reduce muscle soreness following a cramp. According to Dr. David Kiefer, heat brings more nutrient-rich blood to the muscles, which helps transport pain-causing chemicals away from the affected areas.
- Use Epsom salts. Magnesium is an important part of our diet to help fight muscle cramps. You can also use magnesium on the outside of your body in the form of Epsom salts. Add to your bath or use a wet cloth to press the salts onto a cramped muscle.
- Massage the area. Massage therapy relaxes muscle tissue, which helps reduce painful contractions and spasms. When you experience a muscle cramp, gently rub the affected area until the pain subsides.
- Stretch. Stretching daily provides a variety of healthy perks, including relieving and even preventing muscle cramps. Try these stretching exercises before bed and as soon as you feel a cramp coming on.
- Apply Theraworx Relief. Our topical solution provides fast, targeted relief of muscle cramps and spasms. When applied daily, Theraworx Relief can even stop cramps and spasms before they happen.
